Turning Brown Into Green

Posted by on 12/25/2014 1:35:18 AM

Bettors will not have to be magicians to turn Brown into green if they get on Chad Brown’s bandwagon and ride it for all its worth.

One of the greatest training feats in recent years came in 2003 when Richard Mandella won 4 Breeders’ Cup races butChad Brown was not that far away this season as Dayatthespa took theBC Filly and Mare Turf, Bobby’s Kitten took the BC Turf Sprint and Lady Eli succeeded in the BC Juvenile Fillies Turf.

In his first season as a trainer he made his mark and showed people he belonged when his student Maram won the Juvenile Fillies Turf.

Although all of those victories came on grass, Brown is also proficient with his dirt runners. This year he has hit with 27% of his grass performers and 25% of his runners on dirt. And he turned Last Gunfighter and Zivo into millionaires on dirt.

Brown is not a one trick pony. He takes each one of his horses and tries to figure out the surface, distance and class level that they will belong and excel at to have a successful career.

He got into the game as a young man when going to Saratoga in upstate New York. He used to sneak into the paddock to get a closers look at the racers and t hat is where the love started.

He got his first taste of working with horses when handling harness horses for trainer Paul Kelley. He was on his way to be a veterinarian when he studied at Cornell University but after being hired by Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey, he decided he wanted to be a conditioner.

The then got a big break and had the major good fortune to work with one of the greatest horsemen of all time, Bobby Frankel. Frankel was a taskmaster and Brown rose through the ranks and learned from the bottom of the operation up. He eventually handling a division of Frankel’s horses and decided to hang out his own training shingle in 2007.

He was so impressed with Frankel that in his first few years of training he didn’t want to make any mistakes thinking that he was still Frankel’s assistant.

There are many aspects of Chad’s style that handicappers can latch onto and use to their advantage. When he saddled a juvenile debuter on grass, players should pay attention He is 23% with that type and 57% of those racers run in the money in the last 5 years. He is great with horses that have been on vacation. Brown hits with 27% of his starters that return after a layoff of 180 days or more.

He doesn’t dip into the claim box often but when he does it’s meaningful. He has hit with 8 of 31 starters or 26% the last 5 years with first off the claim runners and 71% ran in the money.

When he switches to blinkers off, Brown is really potent. He has succeeded in 9 of 23 starters or 39% the last 5 years and 3 others ran second.

This is just a sampling of the good work this trainer does but the bottom line is he is adept at many facets of the game and must be given the utmost respect.
